The Witcher 3 Developer Clears Misconceptions About CyberPunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 release date

Cyberpunk 2077 developer has come forward to clear some misconceptions about the game’s development. Over the past few weeks some publications reported that CyberPunk 2077 is still a long way from release because CD RED recently updated its development tools.

This came as a very disappointing piece of news because it was presented in a way that made it seem like official work hasn’t even begun. CD Projekt RED has assured fans that this isn’t the case and the articles written by different publications were clickbait.

According to visual effects artist Jose Teixeira:

I mentioned that we were upgrading the engine based on the feedback everybody gave from The Witcher 3. We’re upgrading the engine. It’s a pretty thorough upgrade. Almost every aspect of the engine is getting upgraded. My particle effects editor is getting upgraded, as is almost every other tool.

But the article that was written online was worded in a slightly click-bait-y type way that made it sound like we haven’t even started really working on Cyberpunk yet. I didn’t say that. We’re just upgrading the tools. That’s all I said. That’s something that any company that uses custom software has to do from time-to-time. That’s all

The Witcher 3 Blood and Wine will release on May 31 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Now developers will focus on CyberPunk 2077 fully that will speed up the process even more. As for updating the tools, it is a routine process developer do from time to time, like Jose Teixeira mentioned above.

The engine team took all the feedback, and they’re upgrading it,” said Teixeira. “The hope is that it’ll allow us to do a lot more with the same engine. A lot more and faster. It’s still very much an ongoing process, but it’s promising stuff

Cyberpunk 2077 is more ambitious than The Witcher 3 and the developers are highly excited to be working on it.
